During the 2020-2021 academic year, the Lasallian Region of North America (RELAN) is highlighting Lasallian Women of Hope (LWH) as part of a worldwide effort to provide inclusive, equitable and quality education for all. The campaign, “Education: Let’s Build Our Future Together,” was developed by the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools’ Solidarity and Development Secretariat network. The campaign encourages Lasallian schools to host classes, financially support and energetically promote the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) to “ensure universal access to inclusive and equitable quality education.”
A project of the Solidarity and Development Secretariat, LWH fosters educational access, empowers girls and women, and creates sustainable change. Its mission is to ensure girls and women enjoy full access to education. LWH began as a small project providing grassroots female empowerment while developing sustainable solutions to mitigate obstacles impeding educational access. Through its grants, LWH delivers creative, effective and durable solutions to educational inequities for girls and women.
